Jeremy Renner’s journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe might come to an end due to a series of allegations regarding his personal life. The actor is currently in a legal battle with his ex-wife Sonni Pachecho over the custody of their daughter, Ava.
Pachecho has accused Renner of abusing substances including alcohol and cocaine. She also declared that the 48-year-old had threatened to kill her and himself while intoxicated, and had left illegal substances within the reach of their daughter.
According to a report by pop culture news site We Got This Covered citing multiple sources, there is a possibility that Marvel Studios and Disney are looking to recast Hawkeye due to the troubles swarming Renner’s personal life.
The report states that the complications surrounding the actor might affect the studio’s family-friendly reputation, even if the allegations against the actor turn out to be false. However, nothing has been solidified as of yet.
The upcoming Hawkeye series is set to be released in 2021 and could be the last of Renner as Marvel’s arrow-wielding superhero. It is also reported that the series will see Hawkeye passing over his mantle to Kate Bishop, who plays a key character among the Young Avengers.
Though there hasn’t been any confirmation from official sources yet, fans on Twitter have expressed their feelings towards the rumor. Some fans feel that Renner, who played Hawkeye for almost a decade, is irreplaceable, while others are delighted over the recast and are looking forward to the next Hawkeye.
